Affiliate hospital to AMA School of medicine
AMASOM’s affiliate training hospital is the QUIRINO MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER (QMMC). Below is an excerpt from an article about QMMC published in the Manila Bulletin last August 25, 2013.
“Quirino Memorial Medical Center was formerly called Labor Hospital – a name that was an acknowledgment of the contribution of the working force, which was its intended primary beneficiary. However, when the first building was to be constructed on November 11, 1952, the Department of Labor turned the project over to the Department of Health (DOH) with the request that it be named after President Elpidio R. Quirino whose social amelioration program included medical services to the infirm.
